I'm looking at a boat purchase
that would involve the trucking of a boat from there to here. (No, it can't be sailed here.) I'm reaching out to a handful of transporters that have been recommended by my local boat yard.
Other than estimated cost (and where unplanned costs might surface), what should I ask them to explain up front? I've not seen one of these contracts before, but it seems like there should be a defined statement of work that details what they will and will not do and what a supporting boat yard would need to do (both loading and unloading). I'll ask about insurance
, but what else should I bring up with potential movers? Everyone I'm contacting has performed well enough for my boat yard to earn a recommendation, but there may be things that I need to know/ask up front and I'm blazing a new trail here.
